Northwestern University's Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program is excited to recognize its new graduates in the upcoming graduation ceremonies in June, 2019. Our students have worked hard to earn the MSIT degree. While some have managed this degree as part-time students with full-time jobs, others quit their jobs to be full-time students with the MSIT program. It is time now to celebrate all of their hard work.

Caps & Gowns:

The MSIT program will order your caps & gowns (regalia) for use during the ceremonies. Please DO NOT order regalia separately from the University Services. Graduates may keep their caps and tassels but gowns must be returned MSIT.
